What does this mean?

Dear Anne,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. My sincere apologies for the delay with the appraisal.

The presented object appears to be a Yoruba culture beaded breastfeeding fertility idol. This idol was made in the second half of the 20th century.
Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and no severe damage is visible in the images.
A fair market estimation would be between 100 to 150 USD.
This estimate is based on recently recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
George
